Red Earth ROM Download for CPS 3

It is a 2D competitive fighting game released in 1996 by Capcom. Many consider this game as a hidden gem. The game premise is that the Monsters attack the entire planet, and it's up to the four heroes to fight them. You have to select from the four characters which you want to play: Leo (the warrior with a lion's head), Tessa (the witch), Kenji (the ninja), and Mai Ling (the warrior with pigtails) and then move forward to battle the eight bosses. Each hero has his/her reasons for hunting down these evil creatures; they have their own story. The combat in the game is fantastic. Players battle with boss style fighters and try to beat them and level up their current hero. After you die or win the game, you can restart, levell up the hero and become more rigid in the game. The gameplay mechanics in this game are excellent.

In Quest Mode, the player selects from one of the four characters, and moves forward through the character's storyline and fights against a series of eight computer-controlled opponents in one-on-one battles.
